    I recently gave my old Powerbook to my parents. Now I've been using Macs for several years, but parents have been using Windows their whole lives and are Mac newbies.

    So far they love the Powerbook, but I'm getting a little tired of being their constant tutor. Does anyone have a recommendation for a simple, easy to understand book aimed at people who are switching from Windows to Mac? My parents are not very technically minded, so the less technical jargon contained, the better (for them).

    Thanks in advance for any recommendations anyone can provide.

    Well I can't tell you how good it is because I haven't actually received it yet but I have asked for Switching to a Mac For Dummies for Christmas, like your parents I've used PCs all my life so sometimes even the simplest task can seem a little challenging :eek:

    I like David Pogue's Switching to the Mac. It comes in both Tiger and Leopard editions. Otherwise just enter "Switching to the Mac" in the subject box of a search at Amazon. There are many choices.
